, that's clear, isn't it? so there he was, he was making his 15th trip to afghanistan and it was while he was over at camp leatherneck that the marines asked him, okay, if there are a bunch of pentagon cuts, how is that going to affect our equipment and stuff like that. and wherever he has gone so far during this particular swing through the country of afghanistan, the troops are saying are we going to get paid? and he's saying, i don't know. just know this whatever you are owed you'll get paid eventually. you know, and this is how this works down. if we do, talking about if we go into a debt ceiling where we can't pay our bills technically which i don't agree with anyway, let's say, the president has the tablt to decide who gets paid when. clearly the debt is going to get paid first. china and saudi arabia are paid before our military, as bad as that sounds, that has to happen, so our borrowing costs don't go through the roof and then pay the military and social security, and if you dodonn tt order, give the department of education money first, it's the president's fault. it's not congre
in afghanistan, that's not going to coerce me into voting for it. on the other hand, i do think that some of the few remaining serious republicans understand that they will get blamed for this. so i think there is some pressure to do that. one other point i want to mention, rachel, which deeply angers me, these are people, the tea party people, who came to be the constitutionalists, they are in the process of launching the most fundamental assault on the american constitution, fundamental principle we have ever seen, and that was majority rule. the great breakthrough in the 18th century was self governance. and if you read the constitution, the assumption is majority rule in congress. it's majority rule in the states. in no part of the u.s. constitution are you required to get more than a simple majority of both houses to do anything. there's a 2/3 required for treaty only in the senate. that was special with foreign powers. there's a 2/3 requirement to amend the constitution or to impeach someone. but for legislation everywhere in the constitution all you need is a majority, and these pe
as afghanistan. barack obama does not make that a priority. >> why is he not prioritizing this? >> he's got the wrong people around him. it's very clear. i heard you say he's very calm and serene. i love calmness and serenity. but when people i'm concerned about are catching hail which is poor people of all colors, you ought to have a state of emergency. fdr had a state of emergency. lbj, our white brother from texas had a state of emergency in regard to black america. he has conscience. >> in the african-american community particularly, do you feel he's not doing enough to help african-americans especially poor? >> i think there's an ambivalence in america. black people for the most part have a deep sense of protection for barack obama. he's visually attacked by right wing and fox news and others all the time. he lives under the threat of death. we all pray for him daily. >> i haven't i haven't heard fo quite what you said about him. >> you know what the reason is? i tell the truth. fox news doesn't. >> so the truth -- when you abuse him it's the truth. when they abuse him -- >> i love mas
the economy was -- but really, we have the sound bite. >> susan page, remember the comment about afghanistan during the debate. it feels like it's almost as if we're going to find out, well, he misspoke. well, that's -- you know, right now, this is not hurting him too much but over time, this could accumulate. >> going right to a core vulnerability for mitt romney. all the flip-flops we saw last time around on social issue. he cannot afford to be someone as changing positions. if michele bachmann said something -- >> susan page, eugene robinson, richard wolff. we're coming back. you get to say something right after the break. i promise. >>> this is "hardball." two segment analysts. only on msnbc. okies goodbye. new newtons fruit thins. real blueberries and blueberry brown sugar... crispy whole grain. newtons fruit thins, one unique cookie. challenge that with olay regenerist night elixir. its gentle glycolic formula resurfaces at night for the smooth skin of a light chemical peel. sleep tight. regenerist, from olay. >>> the republican presidential field is adding yet another candidate. five-
as afghanistan. barack obama does not make that a priority. that's why i'm deeply disappointed. >> why is he not prioritizing this? >> he has the wrong team. he has the wrong people around him. i heard you say he is very calm and serene. i love calmness. but when people i am concerned about is catching hell, which is working people of all colors, poor people of all colors, then you ought to have a state of emergency. fdr had a state of emergency. abraham lincoln, state of emergency. lbj, our white brother from jim crow, texas, has a state of emergency in regard to black america. he had a conscience. >> let me ask you a question. does the african-american community in america, generally do you think, does it feel particularly let down because he is african-american that you feel he is not doing enough for other african-americans? many of whom are poor? >> i think brother tavis said it well. i think there's an ambivalence in black america. black people for the most part have a deep sense of protection of barack obama. he's viciously attacked by right wing and fox news and others all the time.
savings based on savings on troop levels in iraq and afghanistan. >> well, interesting enough while they're calling the overseas contingency operation dollars phantom funds, anderson, you may know they used those funds and put them in their own budget that they've already voted for and relied on. >> so where do you see this going? what do you think happens tonight? what do you think happens tomorrow? >> well, of course, i don't know what's going to happen tonight. obviously the republicans are meeting with themselves to see whether or not they have the votes to pass what john boehner has offered as a purely partisan alternative. we were not involved in those discussions. we were not involved in the decisions. and it's interesting that even in their own party it is deeply factionalized, deeply divided paint, divided against their leadership, angry at their leadership, and a party that is divided itself has difficulty working with the president or working with us. and that's unfortunate. and the country is the poorer for it. and the image of america is poorer for it. and i would hope that
, well, 1.1 of that or more are phantom savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan we're going to end, anyway. those are not real cuts. and boehner wants to come back. it's complicated. i'm still hopeful we'll get something. i think the stock market going down 200 points today, while bad news for 401 k owners i think really did send a powerful message to the congress. you're really playing with fire here now. the markets are -- you thought monday the markets were complacent. they're no longer complacent. they're sending you a strong signal, buddy. get your act together or you're going to have real trouble. >> they can try and play the blame game. >> go ahead, gloria. >> i was going to say, they can try and play the blame game with each other, which i'm sure they will do. because once you pass a bill in the house the republicans can say, look, we've done it. we've done our work. once you pass a bill, a democratic bill in the senate, democrats could say we've done our work. but i think they're beyond that, anderson. because i think they will all suffer in the end if they don't ge
is stationed over in afghanistan and he asked kunis to attend the ball in a youtube video. interesting stuff. >> a big fan of her. i met her. she's great. that's cool that she's going. >> time now for the ridiculist. tonight we have to add all the romance haters out there who continue to doubt the love between these two folks, doug hutchison and courtney today den. perhaps you've seen him in "the green mile" or "lost" or "the x file" and his bride 16-year-old courtney. you might have seen her relaxing on the beach wearing the american flag perhaps. or perhaps sick singing in a boat with a dog that match her bikini. ♪ when i go shopping i say popping when i'm a walking they'll be talking ♪ >> yeah. she's 16. kids today. so yes, there is a 35 year age difference. no, courtney hasn't graduated from high school yet. and yes, many have criticized their union. but the happy couple were on good morning america today explaining their relationship putting all skepticism to rest. it is a classic love story really, 53-year-old boy meets 16-year-old girl online setting into motion a four month onlin
